SF Dems host October Obama events

San Francisco Democrats are hosting a number of events in early October to help elect President Barack Obama to a second term.

Several of the get-togethers are tied into the first of three presidential debates Obama and his GOP opponent, former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney, will take part in next month.

They begin Wednesday, October 3 with a debate focused on domestic policy at the University of Denver in the battleground state of Colorado. It will take place from 6 to 7:30 p.m. Pacific (9 to 10:30 p.m. Eastern) time.

On the day of the debate the Obama for America 
campaign is hosting phone-banking sessions for local Democrats to call voters in battleground states. Volunteers can sign up for three-hour sessions at the local Democratic Party’s election HQ at 2278 Market Street in the Castro district.

Several debate watching parties are also taking place that night. The locally based Pride PAC is holding what appears to be its first event since forming in March.

It is hosting a debate salon in conjunction with the Hotel Abri’s Adam Holcomb. The newly renovated hotel is providing refreshments from its restaurant Puccini & Pinetti. Tickets cost $20 and can be bought online here.

The president will be back in the area for a San Francisco fundraiser Monday, October 8 where musician John Legend will be the special guest. LGBT supporters are once again trying to make their presence known by sitting together as a group.

Tickets cost $100 for the event at the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium, with doors opening at 5:30 p.m. To bundle your ticket with other LGBT donors, purchase them online here.
